Refugee Challenge-2016

On the last Thursday of term, fifty Year 10 students had the opportunity to participate in a simulation program at Kirrawee High School that mirrors the experience of a refugee.

Every year millions of people flee persecution and cross the borders of their own countries to try and find safety;  50% of them are young people.  The Refugee Challenge gives students the opportunity to walk in their shoes.

Our students were completely immersed in the life of a refugee for two hours. The challenge revolved around moving through a number of stations as a refugee family.  Initially they had to cross a border and were intimidated and threatened by border guards. They lost many of their possessions at this point. Students struggled through life in a refugee camp with limited food, dirty water and poor sanitation.  They then took a perilous journey on a leaky boat and ended up in a detention centre.​

This was such a good experience for the Year 10 students, enriching their study of human rights in Geography with a focus on refugees.
